Theme: Space Shuttle


OVERVIEW
The Space Shuttle program (SSP) plays a vital role in enabling NASA's vision and mission. This includes advancing human exploration and providing safe access to space in support of human operations in low Earth orbit. The Shuttles primary role is to complete the assembly of the International Space Station (ISS). The Shuttles phase out is planned for the end of the decade, following completion of it role in ISS assembly. The FY 2005 budget request will allow NASA to meet the intended flight rates; provide appropriate contingency planning to assure transportation and assembly support to the International Space Station (ISS); and include high priority projects for mission assurance.
Missions Exploration Capabilities Goals supported by this Theme 8. Ensure the provision of space access, and improve it by increasing safety, reliability, and affordability. Objectives supporting those Goals 8.3 Improve the accessibility of space via the Space Shuttle to better meet Space Station assembly, operations and research requirements.

R E L E V AN C E
In 1972 President Nixon issued a statement to initiate the "development of an entirely new type of space transportation system designed to help transform the space frontier of the 1970s into familiar territory, easily accessible for human endeavor in the 1980s and '90s. The Space Shuttle is essential to the assembly of the ISS, its primary mission before its planned phase out at the end of the decade.
Education and Public Benefits The SSP provides Long-term benefits to the public through support to the ISS and enables researchers to undertake experiments in the unique environment of space. The SSP is contributing to NASA's goal to get students excited about science and mathematics and help advance the Nation's education goals by supporting the Educator Astronaut Program.

Although the STS-107 Space Shuttle mission ended tragically, all 80 of the experiments onboard studying Earth and space science, advanced technology development, and astronaut health and safety were conducted successfully. More than 50 percent of this research was recovered. The Shuttle program has established an Implementation Plan for Return to Flight and Beyond to address all the actions necessary to comply with the formal recommendations of the Columbia Accident Investigation Board (CAIB) and to assure a safe return to flight as soon as practicable. Before the Columbia accident, the Space Shuttle program successfully completed two other missions in FY 2003. The STS-112 mission delivered the first EC 6-2

starboard truss segment to the ISS. In addition to performing a crew exchange, the STS-113 mission delivered the first truss segment on the left side of the ISS. Three spacewalks were performed on each of these missions. The Program Assessment Rating Tool (PART) evaluation concluded "Results Not Demonstrated" due to the loss of the Space Shuttle Columbia, and also due to the lack of good short and long-term measures. To improve the next PART evaluation, additional measures will be added. Go to http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/ for more detailed status information.

PURPOSE
Objectives 8.3 Performance Measures 5SSP1,4

AHMS project supports this objective by enabling safe Space Shuttle Main Engine shutdown during potentially catastrophic high pressure turbopump failures which decreases ascent risk by approximately ten percent.

OVERVIEW
The AHMS project for the Space Shuttle Main Engines (SSME) will provide improved real-time vibration monitoring of the SSME and will provide improved engine anomaly response capabilities. AHMS consists of modifications to the existing SSME flight controller. These modifications include: 1) adding a vibration redline monitor for high pressure turbopumps, 2) doubling memory capacity and utilizing radiation tolerant memory, 3) adding an external communication interface for a potential Phase 2 Health Management Computer, and 4) eliminating existing memory retention batteries and replacing them with non-volatile memory. This project funds these modifications and the testing necessary to validate their performance and safety benefits to the Space Shuttle program.

Theme: Space Shuttle Development: Cockpit Avionics Upgrade (CAU)


PURPOSE
Objectives 8.3 Performance Measures 5SSP1,4

The CAU will increase crew situational awareness and decrease crew workload in the cockpit to enable more timely and accurate crew decisions. Excessive crew workload adversely affects the crew's situational awareness and impairs crew ability to diagnose and isolate system failures. Improving the crew's ability to manage information during critical flight operations will significantly benefit the safety and reliability of the SSP. The CAU minimum success criteria for safety improvement is a 100 percent increase in trajectory monitoring, a 50 percent increase in critical system monitoring, and 20 percent increase in overall system monitoring.

OVERVIEW
CAU will implement new orbiter cockpit avionics hardware and software to meet the man-machine interface requirements identified by the Space Shuttle Cockpit Council to enhance overall crew safety. Orbiter cockpit displays and crew interface capabilities will be significantly improved by replacing the existing Integrated Display Processors with higher performance Command and Display Processors. These units will provide expanded processing performance to enable dramatic improvements in information access and display capability as well as the implementation of the new Abort Flight Management software function.

SSP Program Integration assures the successful technical integration of all Shuttle elements and payloads into each mission to efficiently and effectively meet the customer requirements in exploring the fundamental principles of physics, chemistry, and biology through research in the unique environment of space. Program Integration performs the analyses necessary to demonstrate the ability to safely and reliably conduct each Shuttle mission.

OVERVIEW
The Program Integration budget includes funds for the analysis, management, and the Safety, Reliability, Maintainability, and Quality Assurance function that is performed for the entire Space Shuttle Program. Program integration includes those elements managed by the Space Shuttle Program Office at the Johnson Space Center and conducted primarily by United Space Alliance, including payload integration into the Space Shuttle and systems integration of the flight hardware elements through all phases of flight. Shuttle integration provides for the engineering analysis needed to ensure that payloads that are integrated to form a viable and safe cargo and meet Space Shuttle interface requirements. Shuttle integration includes the necessary mechanical, aerodynamic, and avionics engineering tasks to ensure that the launch vehicle can be safely launched, fly a safe ascent trajectory, achieve planned performance, and descend to a safe landing. High-priority mission assurance projects for safety, supportability, and infrastructure to combat obsolescence of vehicle, ground systems, and facilities that were formerly part of the Space Shuttle Service Life Extension Program are included in this budget.

PURPOSE
Objectives 8.3 Performance Measures 5SSP1-3,5

SSP Flight Hardware assures the vehicle hardware and software are designed, developed, manufactured, and tested sufficiently to enable the safe and reliable transportation that meets customer requirements for research in the unique environment of space. Shuttle Flight Hardware and software assures the success of each Shuttle mission.

OVERVIEW
The Flight Hardware program produces space components to support Shuttle mission requirements and ensures core skills and capabilities required for maintaining the orbiter as a safe and effective transportation and science platform. Other support requirements are also provided for in this budget, including tasks, which support flight software development and verification. The software activities include development, formulation and verification of the guidance, targeting and navigation systems software in the orbiter.

PR O G R AM M AN AG E M E N T
The Shuttle flight hardware responsibility is delegated to Johnson Space Center for Orbiter and Extra-vehicular Activity (EVA), MSFC for ET, RSRM, SRB, and SSME, and SSC for SSME test support. The Space Flight Enterprise Program Management has SSP governing responsibility. Enterprise official is William F. Readdy, Associate Administrator for Space Flight at Headquarters. Point of Contact is General Michael C. Kostelnik, Deputy Associate Administrator for ISS and SSP at Headquarters. The Program Manager is William Parsons at JSC. Full compliance with NPG 7120.5B will be achieved in FY 2004.
